Martin OM-45 Marquis

Martin OM-45 Marquis

According to C. F. Martin III, the 14-fret neck was developed in late 1929. Prior to the period, guitars were generally equipped with a 12-fret neck. As the story goes, a renowned plectrum banjoist of the day, Perry Bechtel, suggested to Frank Henry Martin that he make a guitar with a 14-fret neck. Bechtel reasoned that the longer neck would increase the guitar’s range and make it a more versatile instrument. Following Bechtel’s advice, Martin introduced a guitar with the longer neck and dubbed it an “Orchestra Model.”

Collings OM2H E Custom Cutaway

Collings OM2H E Custom Cutaway

It has been a while since we had a Collings flat top with a cutaway, so when we were looking to put together a custom order, an OM2H with Englemann spruce top seemed to be the logical choice. The last time we had an OM2H in stock, the crisp enunciation and complex sonic detail left a lasting impression… and this guitar serves up the same tonal bliss. Features include a premium Englemann spruce top, Indian rosewood sides and back, beautiful Herringbone top marquetry, venetian cutaway, and a very comfortable soft V neck profile. This piece further emphasizes the precision and attention to detail that has become a calling card of all Collings guitars.
